The San Juan Capistrano Chapter is one of 36 chapters of the California Dressage Society whose charter it is to promote and support the sport of dressage within the state of California. Our chapter is a non-profit group with over 200 members who live, train, and ride in Orange County, California (San Juan Capistrano and surrounding communities).

We are a very active chapter that hosts a number of shows, clinics, and events each year. Our members include riders of all levels including beginners, juniors, young riders, adult amatuers, and seasoned professionals. We welcome anyone with an interest in dressage and provide many opportunities to participate in our activities.


These board members work hard to serve our chapter and local dressage community, because most importantly...this is YOUR chapter! If you have ideas, suggestions, questions, comments, or would like to find a way to become more involved, our leadership would love to hear from you.

Kathy King - Co-Chair
Kathy started riding as a child in hunter competitions and began riding dressage as an adult. After working on a standardbred farm in charge of a breeding stallion in New York, she moved to California. She was volunteer coordinator at both SJC Olympic selection trials and has scribed at the 2005, 2007, and 2009 World Cups. Kathy manages the chapter horse shows and works at other major horse shows in both southern and northern California. For the past 12 years her equine partner has been her Polish Arabian horse, Sparky. 

Kristin Young - Co-Chair
Kristin is a long time dressage enthusiast and enjoys serving on the San Juan Chapter board as co-chair. She is in charge of chapter sponsored clinics, so if you have a great idea, she would love to hear about it and help make it happen. Kristin is pictured here with her horse, Mr. J.
